  • An efficient three-phase culture has been developed for plant regeneration of Leucopogon verticillatus (R. Br.) (Ericaceae formerly Epacridaceae [Ann. Missouri Bot. Gard. 85 (1998): 531–553]) via somatic embryogenesis as indicative of likely culture scenarios for other Ericaceae. The Ericaceae, particularly many Australian species, are often difficult to propagate by conventional forms of nursery propagation. Initiation of somatic embryos was best achieved using Gamborg’s B5 medium, pH 6, 4… CONTINUE READING
